The Meath Peace Group is a voluntary group based in County Meath in the Republic of Ireland. The group was founded in April 1993 in Slane. It is not connected to any political party or religious denomination and is founded on the belief that ordinary people have a role and responsibility in bringing about the climate in which a just and lasting peace can develop.
